RC Car Use at Salt Lake City Model Plane Airport
In 2016, Salt Lake City Public Lands constructed a model airplane airport on the west side of the city (7595 West California Avenue). The airport has been a successful venue for model airplane enthusiasts from all over the Wasatch Front.
Public Lands is now considering expanding the venue to also include space for remote control car users. This would be a low-cost project that in part would utilize volunteers and would fulfill a need that has been expressed to Public Lands by members of the community.
Currently, remote control car drivers use mountain biking parks or other locations around the city that are not suitable for remote control car use. Public Lands hopes that this new area would provide a location where remote control car enthusiast can enjoy driving their cars without having to worry about sharing space with bikers or disturbing local homeowners with the noise of their cars.
Public Lands has been gathering feedback from remote control airplane and car users. If you'd like to provide feedback on this project, please contact Luke Allen at 801-972-7891 or
